through the woods


It’s true that I just really wanted to use that post title, following yesterday’s “over the river.” When I thought of what images to go along with those, it occurred to me that I had just used bunches of them for my post “tunnels through trees.” Happily, I do tend to collect a lot of images, which means that I always seem to have more photos that I haven’t yet posted here. (At least, I don’t think I’ve posted this one here. But I believe I did on Instagram.) In any case, I do quite like this photo, with its various contrasting and criss-crossing lines: curving tire tracks in the light snow and the crisp straight-line shadows of the morning sun streaming through the trees. This photo was from February of 2013, but the trees look about the same now at the end of November, with only a few stubborn leaves hanging on the trees.

So here we are at the end of November. I more-or-less participated in NaBloPoMo, in that I posted every day and left a link to my blog on the official NaBloPoMo site (I’m number 870 out of the 1427 blogs listed there.) But I didn’t much have time to check out any of the other blogs listed. And given that I had been posting daily the previous 2 months, it didn’t feel much different. Not like in 2007, when I created the now-defunct Ministry of Silly Blogs, and otherwise connected with quite a few bloggers who became friends.

And now that I am through the woods of November, I need to decide whether I want to continue to post daily. In these 3 months, I have actually not written very much. There still remain the backlog of posts running through my head, including some on important topics that I feel compelled to address. But even though I have not quite written what I had hoped, I have appreciated having this creative outlet, and making myself use it regularly. I have enjoyed posting many of the varied collections of photos that have been accumulating in my photo library.

  2. I have also been enjoying your posts, though I haven’t been entirely consistent in keeping up on a daily basis–but then I always go back and catch up when I return!
